We like Max Lucado a lot and highly recommend his books. The one we are reading right now is, It’s Not About Me. We often get wrapped up in the mindset that it is all about us. We are born selfish and until we break from our sinful selfish nature do we truly worship and honor the Lord. This particular chapter speaks on how we treat our bodies. It relates it to if you had a house sitter and they did what they wanted to do in your house while they were there. One person changing the furniture, changing the paint colors. Or, the other that did nothing. They totally neglect the house and don’t clean or take the trash out. How would you feel in either of these situations? Both treating the house as if it were theirs. So, how do you treat your body like one of these house sitters? It is not yours it is the Lords. Do we take of ourselves so that we honoring the Lord?
” Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
